Shaheed El-Hafed (Refugee Camps), October 29, 2018 (SPS) - The Polisario Front denounced on Sunday the attempts carried out by some well-known parties within the European Union to circumvent the decisions of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on the natural resources of Western Sahara.

Saharawi Coordinator with MINURSO, Amhamed Khaddad, also in charge of legal affairs and natural resources, reiterated in an intervention during the meeting of the Council of Ministers held on Sunday, that the Polisario Front will remain firm in its intention to continue condemning and denouncing any maneuver, circumvention of international legality and any attempt to exploit or plunder the Sahrawi natural resources. 

The Sahrawi official stressed that the Polisario Front is committed to defending the rights of the Sahrawi people. As regards the riches of the territory, on several occasions he filed many complaints and appeals against European companies and parties involved with the Kingdom of Morocco in the sacking of Sahrawi natural resources.

He called on Spain to assume its legal, historical and moral responsibility towards the Sahrawi people, highlighting that it is useless to evade that responsibility after 43 years. (SPS)
